Why get your contract checked?

If you’ve just started in a new post or recently moved on to the new junior doctor contract, get your contract personally reviewed to ensure you are getting the correct entitlements.

Our dedicated team of experts will check your contract against the national models and return it back to you within five working days. We will advise you of any issues you need to be aware of and we can provide additional support to get these resolved.

In 2022, we checked over 8,100 employment contracts and over 25% of the contracts we checked in 2022 deviated from the national model, does yours?


Who can get their contract checked?

Whatever stage of your career you are at, any BMA member can get their contract checked.
